Cristiano Ronaldo: "Saudi League Is Better Than MLS". by Almiron: 11:53pm On Jul 17, 2023
I'm 100% sure I won't return to any European club. I opened the way to Saudi league... and now all the players are coming here". - Cristiano Penaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo: "I won't return to European football, the door is completely closed".

"I'm 38 years old, also European football has lost lot of quality... only valid one is Premier League, they're way ahead of all the other leagues".

Twitter: Fabrizio Romanio

Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed that the Saudi Pro League is better than Major League Soccer following Lionel Messi’s move to Inter Miami.

Since the move of Ronaldo to the Middle East, several high-profile players have followed in his footsteps this summer with Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Roberto Firmino and former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard among those who have made the move to Saudi Arabia.

Messi, however, xhose a differentcpath as he was unveiled as Inter Miami’s new signing on Sunday evening after the Argentine World Cup winner opted to leave Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer earlier this summer.

Speaking after Al-Nassr were beaten 5-0 by Celta Vigo in a pre-season friendly on Monday evening, Ronaldo categorically ruled out a return to European football and believes several leagues have dropped in quality.

No, that door is completely closed,’ Ronaldo told Portuguese media when asked about a potential return to a European club.

I’m already 38-and-a-half years old and it’s not worth it.

In my way of seeing football, I think Europe has lost a lot of quality. The only league that for me has a lot of quality and is at a higher level than all the others is the Premier League.

The Spanish league does not have that great quality. The Portuguese league is a good league, but it is not a top, top league. The German league I think has also lost a lot. I’m sure I won’t play in Europe again. I want to play in Saudi Arabia.

Asked about a possible move to MLS, Ronaldo replied: ‘I think the Saudi league is much better than the United States. My team is Al-Nassr.’

The former Man United and Juventus star also believed he has been the catalyst for several other players to make the move from Europe to Saudi Arabia this year.

“100 per cent. It’s a fact,’ Ronaldo said.

I remember when this mumu moved to the camel’s League last season, Messi didn’t utter a word, cos he’s not in other people’s business. This clown can’t hide his jealousy anymore, cos Leo recently moved to the MLS suddenly in his myopic mind Desert league is better than MLS lmao.

He also took a shot at the European league, yet his team was just demolished by a struggling Spanish mid table team Celta Vigo. 🤣😂

Blud thinks he influenced other players to come to the camel’s league, someone should wake this dunce up that they came for the money, Abi na him Dey pay em. Who doesn’t like free money, expect Leo wey turn down a Saudi’s club offer, wey surpass the one wey e Dey earn at Nasiru fc.

Messi don already dwarf this modafucka, his greatest achievement in his footballing career will be “He was compared to Leo Messi”.

Same with his deluded fanbase here on Nairaland and Twitter bots.

Lionel Messi beats Ronaldo’s record following his Inter Miami unveiling.

The most watched football presentation worldwide is now Lionel Messi’s unveiling at Inter Miami, which has surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo‘s at Al Nassr.

Lionel Messi’s announcement at the MLS club set a new standard, beating Ronaldo’s Al Nassr presentation by over 500 million viewers and garnering 3.5 billion views, albeit with fewer social media followers than the Portuguese player.

It is not shocking that more people are watching Lionel Messi’s presentation now. Since he announced that Inter Miami would be his new team for the next phase of his career, the attention of Messi fans in MLS has skyrocketed.

Messi’s new club became the most followed sports team in the US (on Instagram), with a six-fold rise in followers from 1 million to 6 million, and still counting.


Pendulums claim that Messi is not well known in the US yet his unveiling is the most watched football presention in the world wit a whooping 3.5 billion views, surpassing that of Pendu at All Nassr which was 3 billion.

Pendulums equally claimed that Americans don't give two fvks abt football,yet After the unveiling of Messi, Inter Miami became the most followed sports team in the US with a six-fold rise in followers from 1 million to 6 million, and still counting.

Intern Miami now has more followers than any NBA and NFL team. All due to Messi's influence.

This pretender just can't get out of Messi's behind. Obviously his footballing abilities may have faded but his blabbering skills remain top-notch.

Blud was so pained by Goat's record breaking unveiling at Inter Miami last night that he had to play party-spoiler.

Pendu, it wasnt you bringing in all those players to the Emirates, it was Saudi's billions as bait and you as a catch......along with the others.

The GOAT was offered more than twice of the camel wrestler's package, but turned it down because the Messi brand is beyond money.

China has gone this route before, Saudi is doing same. Nothing pioneering about that. At the end of the day, MLS is still ranked leagues above the Saudi league.

And for the diss at European football, it's not surprising after his beg-a-thon to several European clubs to rescue him from oblivion. Sacrificed his long time agent and ally Jorge Mendes because of bruised ego.

Messi meanwhile voluntarily chose Miami after rejecting strong European interest.

Numerouno94 thanks for the tag bro.

Messi achieved everything at 35 and proceeded to US for relaxation and retirement. Meanwhile, Pendu is still giving lectures.

Can you all see why Ronaldo is often mocked when he fails??

Whether you are a fan of his or not, you can see that he is obsessed with Messi. And he talks too much, so much so that he can't hide his obsession for wanting to be the better name.

Any honest football fan can see this. And it obviously didn't start today. You'll agree that the guy is the cause of the unbearable pressure he heeps on himself... He's also responsible for his retrogression of late.


Moral of the story: Be satisfied with where you are (or where God has put you). It's not "passion" to be obsessed with wanting to be greater than another person by all cost. That's jealousy.

It's expected of him to so claim. I guess Messi would claim same about the MLS, but his fans wouldn't accuse him of jealousy.

He spoke in response to an interview by journalists after losing to Celta Vigo. What did you expect him to say?

That his opinion attracts so much reaction is more than sufficient proof of his brand potency.
